Porsche has announced UK pricing of their highly controversial Panamera hatchback will start at £72,266 when it goes on sale September 12.

The base Panamera S costs £72,266 and is available with Porsche's new Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch transmission which adds £2,289 to the bottom line. Next up is the £77,269 Panamera 4S which features standard all-wheel drive and the previously mentioned PDK transmission. Both models feature a 4.8-liter V8 engine that produces 400bhp and 500 Nm of torque which is good enough to allow the 4S to reach 0-62 mph in five seconds flat (5.4 seconds for the Panamera S).

Sitting at the top of the range is the £95,298 Porsche Panamera Turbo which uses a twin-turbo version of the 4.8-liter V8 engine that produces 500bhp and 700Nm torque. In the Turbo, the sprint from 0-62 mph takes just 4.2 seconds while the top speed is 188 mph.

All Panamera models come nicely equipped with a full leather interior, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Bi-Xenon headlights, rear ParkAssist, a tire pressure monitoring system, automatic dimming rear view mirrors, satellite navigation, and Bluetooth connectivity.

As with all Porsches a long list of optional equipment is offered. Among the items potential owners can check off are various wheel designs ranging in sizes from 18-20", ceramic composite brakes, power rear seats, and a high-end Burmester surround sound system with 16 speakers.
